We need your help to find Australia's most underrated golf courses.

They might be courses where you can't believe how cheap the green fees are, or perhaps a remote layout which doesn't nearly get the credit it deserves.

 

Or it could be a really good golf course that is under-appreciated because it is close to one or more world-class venues.

 

With your feedback, iSeekGolf will compile a list of the nation's most underrated courses.

Drouin out in the Gippsland area I found to be one of the cheaper ($15) mint condition and quirkiest and fun lay outs I have played.
Portarlington- $35/45 a round always in decent to very good nick and some fantastic holes. I am not a big fan of curlewis and often argue with curlewis fans about there and portarlington.
Lang Lang- have never played there but have caddied 72 holes and always love the look of this place and from memory it's pretty cheap for 18.

Being serious unlike some from Sydney who don't have any good courses other than NSW.

Lang Lang has to top the list.

Going out further I used to really enjoy Leongatha

Pro Am at Langy on Friday so we'll see how the best Victorian pros manage their way around the course in very benign conditions.

Warragul and Olinda.

Warragul is hardly a hidden gem - everyone east of Melb knows how good it is.
Olinda hasn't existed for a decade or so.

Just shows what you know.

As soon as I read the question I thought of Lang Lang.   It appears some others have too.

 

My old club at Trafalgar is a club that was always pretty cheap for a country membership or just roll up and pay green fees.    Greens have always been it's best element but over time I haven't been back there too much, so I'm not sure how it's coming up now.
